He has been involved in glaucoma drug discovery at Alcon Laboratories, Fort Worth, Texas, for more than 20 years, and became the Head of Glaucoma Research since 2008.  In 2012, he joined the Health Science Center as professor and chair of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the newly established College of Pharmacy, and is a member of the North Texas Eye Research Institute.  Dr. Pang is also an Adjunct faculty member of the Biomedical Engineering graduate program at the University of Texas at Arlington, a Visiting Professor of the School of Pharmacy, National Defense Medical Center in Taipei, Shenzhen Eye Hospital in Shenzhen, and West China Hospital in Chengdu, China. Dr. Pang has edited one book, published more than 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts and book chapters, and has been issued numerous U.S. and international patents.  He is an academic editor of “Medicine” and reviewers of many ophthalmology and pharmacology journals.

Research Interest

Dr. Pang’s research interests mainly focus on the understanding of glaucoma etiology, pathology, and pharmacology, especially on glaucoma neuroprotection.  His is working to delineate essential molecular and cellular mechanisms, as well as characterize receptors and signal transduction pathways related to the abnormal changes in glaucoma.  His laboratory is using rodents and primary cultures of retinal ganglion cells as study models to clarify biological events leading to glaucomatous retinopathy and its prevention and protection.
